I painted this in April, 2021. Starting with acrylic paints I mixed and poured colours for the sky and land into separate containers spilling them onto my canvas and “dancing them” into place.  Once dried, I painted in my houses and outlined them with a thin Posca marker [versatile paint marker, https://www.poscausa.com%5D. Finished with resin.

My art helped me to deal with isolation.  Someone once said “I don’t do detached well.”  Windowless houses speak to an inability to see: a virus, a face, an end. Smoke spills into the atmosphere from the hearths of our families.  We are souls, “In this Together”. Courage.

  1. Couldn’t have conceived a better image to express the isolation/togetherness caused by Covid…white, sterile houses, without windows, one after another, each appearing exempt of life, yet coordinated chimneys of smoke indicating each, though separate, are part of a whole…AMAZING INTERPRETATION!…to my eyes.Sent from Samsung tablet

  2. Thank you both. Despite doing this type of painting for 4 years, I still consider myself to be very much learning!
